Applications can be completed online at www.tasteofbuffalo.com/apply.

“The Taste of Buffalo aims to be a true representation of Western New York's diverse food culture.

The Taste of Buffalo takes place on July 11 and 12 along Delaware Avenue and Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo. To be considered for entry, brick-and-mortar restaurants must be open to the public, operate year-round in Western New York, and offer seating at their principle place of business.
